Thank You Society

Seeing their child hanging from handle bars is every parent's dream,

but seeing them hanging by a noose is the fate that I deem

will happen to those whose dream is to be set free.

To be set free and to achieve the end of bullying.

Achieve the end of bullying and to tell their story.

But before that dream becomes a reality

their perception of themselves is ruined by society.

Who believe that being perfect is the thing to be

and who make suicide a quick way to flee.

But how is being perfect a goal when it's unexceptable to be LGBT.

Being perfect is how you view yourself not how others view you to be,

that's what the community is to teach young children but that is not how it seems.

Being yourself is as perfect as you can be.

Thanks for ruining and ending lives by only portraying the lives of those who are skinny,

thanks for portraying the lives of those who do not have acne.

Thank you for all that you are doing to ruin those that are truly full of beauty.

Thank you demeaning the lives of the LGBT. 

Thank you for ruining and ending the lives of many society.
